 Synapshot: Scrutinizing Two Alzheimer's Genes
Some epileptics can be helped by brain surgery, but thousands remain whose epilepsy cannot be controlled by any present- day treatments.
Once a large family with inherited epilepsy is found, the tools of the international Human Genome Project can usually allow the "mapping" or localization of that gene to a place within one of the 46 chromosomes.
Therefore, mapping an epilepsy gene basically means narrowing the search for the epilepsy gene down to about 500 to 1,000 genes in a smaller area of one individual chromosome.

Ian Coristine's new Thousand Islands book "Water, Wind and Sky" has a padded hard cover, is 9.5 inches square and contains 132 pages of color images that blend the distinction between photography and art.
You've probably seen his bestselling first book of photographs (The Thousand Islands, published in 2002), and you may even have seen Ian Coristine himself, aloft in his bright red ultralight aircraft doing what he does best: searching the length and breadth of the Thousand Islands in search of the perfect photo.
From both aloft and on the water, he captured moments that artfully sum up life in the Thousand Islands, from boats anchored in transparent, emerald-green water off Potter's Beach to brightly-painted Adirondack chairs on a dock to tendrils of mist rising from an early-morning scene.

 Review: A Thousand Acres   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
When viewing a melodrama like A Thousand Acres, it's easy to label it as a "chick flick" or a "tearjerker." However, such a facile categorization would do the movie a disservice, since it possesses a layer of depth that most films of this sort lack.
Although the plot is undeniably overwrought at times, the characters remain strong and reliable, and it's their believability that pulls us through.
A Thousand Acres has a choppy feel, almost certainly the result of the book-to-screen transition, and the pre-epilogue ending happens with surprising suddenness.
